Our Commitment to Accessibility
Authentic Labs is committed to making our website’s content accessible and user friendly to everyone.
Measures to support accessibility
Authentic Labs takes the following measures to ensure accessibility of our website:
- Include accessibility as part of our mission statement.
- Integrate accessibility into our procurement practices.
The Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) defines requirements for designers and developers to improve accessibility for people with disabilities. It defines three levels of conformance: Level A, Level AA, and Level AAA. The Authentic Labs website is partially conformant with WCAG 2.1 level AA. Partially conformant means that some parts of the content do not fully conform to the accessibility standard.
Although our goal is WCAG 2.1 Level AA conformance, we have also applied some Level AAA Success Criteria, including:
- Principle 1: Perceivable – Information and user interface components must be presentable to users in ways they can perceive.
- Non-text Content – All non-text content that is presented to the user has a text alternative that serves the equivalent purpose
- Info and Relationships – Information, structure, and relationships conveyed through presentation can be programmatically determined or are available in text.
- Meaningful Sequence – When the sequence in which content is presented affects its meaning, a correct reading sequence can be programmatically determined.
- Orientation – Content does not restrict its view and operation to a single display orientation, such as portrait or landscape, unless a specific display orientation is essential.
- Use of Color -Color is not used as the only visual means of conveying information, indicating an action, prompting a response, or distinguishing a visual element.
- Contrast (Minimum) – The visual presentation of text and images of text has a contrast ratio of at least 4.5:1, except for large text, incidental text, and logotypes.
- Resize text – Except for captions and images of text, text can be resized without assistive technology up to 200 percent without loss of content or functionality.
- Images of Text (No Exception) -Images of text are only used for pure decoration or where a particular presentation of text is essential to the information being conveyed.
- Principle 2: Operable – User interface components and navigation must be operable.
- Keyboard – All functionality of the content is operable through a keyboard interface without requiring specific timings for individual keystrokes, except where the underlying function requires input that depends on the path of the user’s movement and not just the endpoints.
- No Keyboard Trap – If keyboard focus can be moved to a component of the page using a keyboard interface, then focus can be moved away from that component using only a keyboard interface, and, if it requires more than unmodified arrow or tab keys or other standard exit methods, the user is advised of the method for moving focus away.
- No Timing – Timing is not an essential part of the event or activity presented by the content, except for non-interactive synchronized media and real-time events.
- Three Flashes – Web pages do not contain anything that flashes more than three times in any one second period.
- Page Titled – Web pages have titles that describe topic or purpose.
- Principle 3: Understandable – Information and the operation of the user interface must be understandable.
- Language of Page – The default human language of each Web page can be programmatically determined.
- On Focus – When any user interface component receives focus, it does not initiate a change of context.
- Labels or Instructions – Labels or instructions are provided when content requires user input.
- Error Suggestion – If an input error is automatically detected and suggestions for correction are known, then the suggestions are provided to the user, unless it would jeopardize the security or purpose of the content.
- Principle 4: Robust
- Parsing – In content implemented using markup languages, elements have complete start and end tags, elements are nested according to their specifications, elements do not contain duplicate attributes, and any IDs are unique, except where the specifications allow these features.
- Name, Role, Value – For all user interface components (including but not limited to: form elements, links and components generated by scripts), the name and role can be programmatically determined; states, properties, and values that can be set by the user can be programmatically set; and notification of changes to these items is available to user agents, including assistive technologies.
If you are having difficulty viewing or navigating the content on this website, or notice any content, feature, or functionality that you believe is not fully accessible to people with disabilities, please email our team at firstname.lastname@example.org with “Disabled Access” in the subject line and provide a description of the specific feature you feel is not fully accessible or a suggestion for improvement.
We take your feedback seriously and will consider it as we evaluate ways to accommodate all of our customers and our overall accessibility policies.
